LAYC Training Essentials

 Saturday 27th January

Waverly Court



LAYC Training Essentials has been designed to address the needs of those working with young people. This event offers youth workers/leaders the opportunity to undertake quality training, develop new skills and share their experiences with other people delivering youth work. This event is one of a series the Youth Scotland Network offers across Scotland. 


We have 4 workshops on offer, please select two that you would like to attend and then also a back up choice


Creative Consultations and Evaluations


This fun, interactive workshop will explore creative ways to engage young people in consultations and evaluations.


Confident Staff Confident Children Introduction:


This informative workshop will:

Provide a taster to the Confident Staff Confident Children 16 hour course (available for sign-up through LAYC).

Cover topics such as brain development, attachment, resilience, empathy and well-being.

Explore findings and evidence from biology, neuroscience and psychology in a youth work friendly way.


Social media to be even better youth workers


In this practical workshop you'll get the chance to explore a range of social media channels which can help you support young people and achieve project outcomes better than ever before. We'll look at where Snapchat, Whatsapp, Facebook Live, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other tools can help you compliment an existing service, deliver something completely new to a hard to reach audience or enable you to work more effectively with volunteers. You'll come away from this session with a solid understanding of what makes good social media content, how you can set yourself simple goals and how you can measure success.


Youth Participation


This engaging workshop will look at “What is Youth Participation”, how young people can become involved in “Decision Making” and take active roles as “Young Leaders or Volunteers”.
